Author: Alexandra Ripley
Best Part About the Book: Ummm. Hmmm. That’s a toughie. I’ll get back to you on that one.
What’s Missing: Character development, staying true to the portrayals that were so beloved of Margaret Mitchell’s, and good writing.
I read this book because I was desperate to get more information on the outcome of Scarlett and Rhett’s relationship. Ripley changed their story into a torrid romance novel and the only thing that stayed true to Scarlett’s character was an occasional “Fiddle-dee-dee.” Gone With the Wind lovers, read it if you must. But I feel confident that afterwards, you will continue to choose to decide for yourself how Scarlett’s life really turned out.
